    Welcome to Oak Park High School
    At Oak Park High School, we are very proud to be a part of a supportive community with our students and parents, as well as our partners in the middle and elementary schools. The faculty and staff at OPHS strive to create an environment where students fulfill their academic potential and have opportunities to participate in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.

    Our students are challenged to achieve at high levels in their academic pursuits and are prepared to pursue their post-secondary opportunities at the most highly-selective colleges in the nation. Advanced Placement classes are offered in the all academic areas, foreign languages and fine arts. We offer a distinctive, supportive, and modern learning environment and nearly 75% of our classrooms are equipped with Smart-Boards where our trained teachers integrate cutting-edge technology with core academic subjects. Our foreign language offerings include Spanish, French, and Chinese, and American Sign Language. Oak Park has many options in the fine arts with choral and instrumental music, theater, drawing, painting, sculpture, architecture, animation, and graphic design.

    With over thirty clubs and twenty competitive co-curricular and athletic teams, Oak Park students have ample opportunities to acquire leadership skills and help shape and inspire the school community. Oak Park students lead by example by volunteering on service projects through their club affiliations throughout the community.

    Oak Park students develop critical thinking skills and the ability to analyze, synthesize and evaluate ideas and information. They learn the importance of developing their talents with the prerequisite knowledge needed to make quality life decisions. Our teachers and staff understand how important it is to build positive relationships with students to help them develop as independent learners and thinkers. Our efforts are rewarded by outstanding student success by all measures. Please visit the College Information section of our website where you will see our matriculation rates over the years.  Thank you for visiting our website and supporting our efforts to provide the best possible educational experience for our students.
